The Cinemark Movies 10 theater opened just north of Layton Hills Mall on 7 December 1990. The theater, which cost $1.5 million seats about 1800 and featured high-backed seats with cup-holders, two THX-certified auditoriums, and 4-channel stereo in all theaters. (1)

In August 1992, Cinemark announced that it would expand the Movies 10 theater at Layton Hills Mall to 14 screens by spring 1993. Groundbreaking on the expansion was to begin within 60 days and was to include 13,300 square feet and four 200-seat theaters. (2)

The planned expansion, however, never took place. Instead, Cinemark announced in December 1994 that it would demolish its Movies 6 theater, next to Movies 10, in order to build a 16-screen theater. About the same time, Cineplex Odeon announced it would built a 10-screen theater near the site, giving the area a total of 36 first-run movie theaters. (3)

Cinemark's planned 16-screen became the 7-screen Tinseltown and the new Cineplex Odeon theater had 9 screens instead of 10. With a total of 16 new stadium-seating theaters in the area, Movies 10 eventually changed to a discount theater.

The theater has since been connected to the 7-plex next door, the marquee removed, and the complex is operated as a single building.
